Inhaltsangabe: The highly stratified Indian society, with a history of domination by a few on all the sections of the society, is going through a predicament. There is a crisis for justice in every section of the society, particularly in those who have been tormented for centuries. In spite of many giant thinkers and much ameliorating process at the governmental level, social harmony has been on a constant decline. In view of such a social situation, the modern concept of social justice appears to be complex. In a bid to provide social justice, attempts have been made to synthesize the meritarian and egalitarian elements, but the chaos at the distribution level of goods and services has led us to a long, dark tunnel, seemingly with no way out. The ICPR-sponsored national congress on Morality and Social Justice convened at Patna, January 27-29, 2008, explored the various dimensions of morality and social justice in an apparent attempt to find a way out of the quagmire. Presentations from the seminar have been collected in the volume, which addresses the intersection of morality and social justice with justice, human rights, reservation and reverse discrimination, rights of children, religion, development, and many more. The comprehensive volume includes contributions from such well-known scholars of social philosophy as editor Abha Singh and a host of others from many disciplines across India. The volume is an unprecedented examination of social situation prevailing in India, an honest assessment of how social harmony can either be destroyed or be preserved, and a thorough exploration of what steps might be necessary for the much-needed moral energy and social imagination in order to create a society comprising peace and ordered liberty.

(European Research Area) and to the discussion an increasing political activities within the European Union. The three congresses were an important occasion which enabled us to make the point of research integration in the field of Legal Philosophy, its lines and perspectives. After a debate on political philosophy and legal theory, we discussed some of the most important aspects of moral philosophy connected to law.Since the 1980s the EU institutional and social models have been under disussion. The globalization process has quickened the debate, above all, due to the increase in world economic competition. From this, the ethics thematic has become central in the future development of the European social model. We selected two important subjects: scientific progress and poverty. 262 pp. Englisch.
